Default Not everyone will get a list item

I've talked to several higher level players because I'm a bit ahead of the level curve and nearly all of them have convinced themselves that they will get a list item.

These people actually believe they're gurneteed a list item. [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

The lies we tell ourselves to give meaning to dreams.
It will be very sad when they come crashing into reality.

I look forward to the rants and flames about list items and how not everyone got what they wanted.

This thread is an insight on the reality of the situation.
Comes to terms with the fact of the matter.

Gonna abridge a post I read on this subject in April, which took 6th grade math to sort out.
From Bubbb:
There’s 1440 minutes a day.
That means roughly 51 assassin/PH spawns a day.
Let’s say Named spawn rate is 25% - that’s 13 Assassin spawns a day.
75% drop rate on common item? 10 Guises a day (9.6 using these numbers).

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think there’s 5 months of Guise?

10 guises a day for 5 months?
Roughly 1500 guises. Plus or minus even a few hundred puts it at just shy of 2000 TOPS, by the previous calculation.

2600 players during surge hours means there’s someone who wants it more, who will take days off work, who will put family 3rd, who will get it for their 3rd or 4th alt.

It's better to play without expectation of getting one. If getting a guise is your sole reason for playing green you are probably just going to be disappointed.

That being said, I'll be super sad if I don't get one.

I'd really like to get some Rubicite for my ranger, more for nostalgia (and looking cool) than anything, but I'm not to worried about the final outcome.
